After upgraded to DP6, I am getting messages like:

```
You are opening the application “Bartender” for the first time. Are you sure you want to open this application?
```

at each system startup. I have to click confirm for all of dialog. And they will come back at the next boot up.

Tried to rebuild the launch services, clean caches, no luck.

Any hints for getting this annoy issue resolved?

I have this issue, too. Every app I choose to open on startup shows this popup notification. Fix to this issue would be much appreciated.

I already reverted to DP5, and I am seeing someone else having the same issue, really annoying.

I have about eight apps that are doing this.

Have you tried toggling this between Mac App Store and identified developers and Anywhere?

This has happened to me with every app on every Developer Preview. I thought it was normal.

I have the same problem on my macbook pro BUT no problem with my mac pro, so this is not normal.
I think it is a permission problem, because I also could not add safari extensions until I fixed the permission on that folder.
So now that apple removed the permission fixing, what program can I use to fix permissions that may actually fix this problem, PLEASE!!

So far totally removing, reboot, and reinstall did nothing.
I tried the permissions reset app to a few and nothing.
I tried manually changing permissions and nothing.
Unless I am not finding what it needs??

I do know I loaded the beta on both my macbook pro and mac pro the same day and all updates when they came out the same day, BUT my mac pro does not have this issue at all and the same apps I use on it.

I figured it out (well sort of)
I have duplicated the problem on both my macs.
This only shows up when you
- system preferences
- security & privacy
Put a check mark in the box labeled "Disable automatic login"
Uncheck it and no first time pop ups, check it and they pop up all over again on reboot and restart.
I filed a report with apple I suggest you all do also, PLEASE.

I'm having this issue as well. Additionally, many of my startup items weren't running at a all.

I ended up booting into recovery mode and reinstalling base El Capitan (not formatting) and then updating up to public beta 2. Everything is back to normal now, so I'll keep it this way and hope the next public beta fixes this issue.

This worked for me as well. Sending feedback.

I don't see a "Disable automatic login" check box. Perhaps some other setting removes that option?

I also have FileVault enabled so couldn't try the above "fix". I only had the issue with BetterTouchTool but it seems to have been cured after yesterday's update to the Command Line Tools. That could just be a coincidence of course, but the last few reboots have been clear of those messages.

I am seeing this too, but it is not for EVERY item I have as a Login Item. The following items that I have as Login Items DO NOT pop up the message.

ChronoSync
iTunes Helper
AdobeResource
Keyboard (actually Keyboard Maestro)
NoteBookHelper
HazelHelper
USBOverdrive
XtraFinder

The following DO pop up the message repeatedly

Mountain
BookMacster
ScanSnap
Fantastical
Dropbox
Moom
DragThing
EvernoteHelp

I submitted a but report via the feedback assistant.
